The Veco One is a new pocket friendly all-in-one (AIO) kit from Vaporesso that combines a 1500mAh battery with a matching 2mL Veco tank and uses their Eco Universal Coils (EUC). The EUCs are touted as “affordable and better for the environment”.
The tube shaped Veco One is available in black and silver, and Vaporesso will also offer an expansion kit to double the included Veco Tank capacity from the EU TPD limit of 2ml to 4ml.
Like any other AIO, the Vaporesso Veco One kit should provide a portable, easy, and satisfying vaping experience at times when you don’t need or want a full-size mod. Does it deliver? Let’s take a closer look to find out.
For those who aren’t familiar, the ECU is a cartridge based approach to replacement coils. Instead of unscrewing a complete coil assembly from the tank, you remove the base of the tank and pull out the ECU, which is essentially the core of the coil assembly. Push in a new ECU, reassemble the tank and you’re quickly back in business.
I found dealing with the EUC is a bit easier and a bit cleaner, but really, how hard is it to unscrew a standard coil? I suppose if it does save us money and results in less junk in our landfills, it’s a win-win.
But more so, the big news is the performance of the ECU, which is detailed below.
It really doesn’t get much easier than this: Charge, add juice, vape.
For this review, I used the installed 0.3Ω ceramic ECU. The top fill tank allows plenty of room to accept a standard glass dropper and I easily filled it with no mess. I did not prime the ECU but waited a few minutes for it to become saturated.
Five clicks on, and my first vape was a real eye opener – this ain’t your father’s Ego kit. The 40W Veco One produced a surprising amount of thick, warm vapor and the ceramic ECU gave some of the best flavor I have experienced from a pre-made coil.
At the same time, my wife immediately turned and asked “What was that?” Yep – it whistles, and I haven’t seen the dog since. No, it’s not horribly loud, but definitely noticeable. Trying different airflow settings might have had a minor effect but it continued to whistle through the entire range of adjustment.
Getting back to the performance, all of the warm vaping goodness quickly emptied the 2mL tank but the 1500mAh battery easily outlasted two refills (about 4-6ml). If you don’t want to refill often, you may consider the optional 4ml expansion kit.
The Veco One really excelled on direct lung direct lung hits. I tried closing down the airflow for some mouth to lung hits but it just did not give me a satisfying draw.
Finally, and also a bit surprising, the Veco One gave a fairly consistent vape throughout the life of the battery. I was surprised when the battery started winking at me as the vapor was still pretty strong.
It seems that vaping has come full circle. Many of us started vaping an Ego style kit with a battery and clearomizer. The current crop of AIOs offer an evolution of the same concept but with higher wattage and better vapor production, while the operation remains virtually the same.
Another notable difference between the Veco One is the draw, and it excels as a direct lung hit device. If you want a MTL device it’s best to look elsewhere.
With the Veco One, or any other small kit, convenience often comes a compromise, yet the Veco One delivers performance far in excess of what I expected with thick, warm clouds of vapor and excellent flavor. The battery won’t last you all day, but it is enough to get you through a few hours of vaping – just make sure to fully charge your Veco One and pack a unicorn bottle of juice before you head out and you should be good to go.
Overall, the Veco One is a great little AIO which far exceeded my expectations and at less than 30 bucks, it is definitely worthy of your consideration.
